Today, digital towers are transforming the way air traffic is controlled. It’s a technology that’s making airports around the world safer, more flexible and efficient.
But beyond these universal benefits, there are a whole range of different reasons to consider digital tower technology. Maybe you need a cutting-edge control facility for a new or growing airport? Or you’re looking to upgrade a tower to handle more traffic?
Perhaps you want to replace an ageing tower to save on maintenance? Or to move a tower to make it more secure, or free up valuable space?
Maybe you’re looking to create a contingency facility, so your airport can keep running at full capacity, even if your main tower is out of action?
No one type of digital tower can meet all these different needs.
That’s why NATS and Searidge Technologies have created a range of five models.
Each is designed to address a different challenge while all operating on the same software platform and with access to the same range of smart tools and AI enabled enhancements.
Remote Digital Tower+
A fully digital tower for more complex, mid-sized airports which require more cameras and screens. Can be operated within the airport or from another site.
Hybrid Digital Tower
A hybrid digitised tower, ideal for upgrading and extending the capability of an existing physical tower at a larger airport by incorporating camera feeds and screens.
Hub Digital Tower
A fully digital tower, perfect for replacing a physical tower at a major, multi-runway, multi-terminal airport, or for creating an equally capable contingency facility.
